  • Allow to cook for 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine sweet chilli sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey, chilli flakes, cumin and black pepper to create a marinade.
  • Remove the rack from the foil and place on a braai grid over hot coals.

  • Braai for a further 5 minutes on each side until slightly charred and sticky.
  • Fire-Baked Braai Bread
  • Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix until a dough forms.
  • Knead until smooth, then place in a greased bread tin.
  • Cover with four layers of foil and place between hot coals.
  • Place some coals on top of the foil to ensure even heat distribution.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, then remove from the coals.
